3:00am
the bad. the ski jump doesn't go as planned. the skier lost his grip and planned. finally the ugly. >> time for your brew on this question of the day responses. earlier in the show we asked you about this outrage over a new toy. it's an airport security check point set. some say it sends a negative message about the state of our country and freedom of our children. >> we want to know what you thought about this toy. fine or over the line? chris says it's a toy. it's for kids, not adults. katie from tennessee says that is wrong on so many
3:01am
levels. i can't imagine a kid wanting to play with that toy to begin with. >> connie from ohio says i think we analyze way too much these days. the toy is fine, not going to harm them. thank you so much to everyone who responded. "fox & friends" starts right now. have a great day. >>gretchen: good morning. it is january 22, 2013. i'm gretchen carlson. i hope you're going to have a fantastic day. they escaped from the terrorists. the colorado man survived the algerian hostage crisis. he hid for two and a half days. this morning you're going to want to hear his incredible story. >>steve: the president offering a way forward for america. it starts with a big left turn. >> we resolve a great nation must care for the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and misfortunes. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the
3:02am
risks that make this country great. >>steve: will america buy that we the people is now we the government. we will report. you will decide. >>brian: one guy i know does buy it. it looks like he'll have his media in the corner with the president of the united states. this network executive heard an article telling the president to pulverize and destroy republicans. you can go for their throats. we see him sunday with bob schieffer. we can't make this up. we'll review it only for you on "fox & friends." >>steve: it is the coldest day of the winter so far here in new york city. that is why it was a good decision to go indoors today. >>gretchen: you know even though i grew up in minnesota, i hate the cold weather. so let's pretend it is 90 degrees and go for it.
3:03am
>>brian: yesterday 600,000 people happy yesterday was a little warmer. it was at a minimum 800,000 shy from four years prior. the balls that followed, the parade that ensued. it's always a great day in america. >>gretchen: for me, beyonce. i see that you and i slept together again last night. >>brian: do you mean purple? >>gretchen: sure. let's do headlines. three americans were unfortunately killed in that deadly hostage crisis in algeria. seven americans did survive. one man from colorado managed to hide from the terrorists for two and a half days. he texted his wife about what was happening. she had to wait for word all that time that he was
3:04am
okay. >> she didn't know what was wrong with me or where he was and hadn't heard anything except that he was either captured, murdered or hiding out someplace. so we just prayed. >> it's hard when you've got a loved one in a different country and all that stuff that's happening. it is hard. >>gretchen: some of the weapons used in the attack stolen from libyan stockpiles. terrifying moments for passenger on a southwest flight. the emergency light came on. the pilot slammed on the brakes as they were about to take off, blowing out three tires. >> it was a big jolt when we were in the air and starting to lift. we had to get back down. >>gretchen: 137 passengers and 5 crew members were on board. they were not hurt. right now mechanics are trying to figure out why
3:05am
that light came on. voters across israel heading to the polls. israelly prime minister benjamin netanyahu expected to win reelection. netanyahu is promising voters he will keep israel safe and build jewish settlements despite some international opposition. the video will make your heart stop. a woman faints falling head first on to the train tracks. this is in madrid, spain. an off-duty police officer jumps into action as the train comes roaring into the station. the crowd was able to get the conductor's attention and the train stopped just in time. the officer lifted the woman to safety. a doctor at the scene checked her out. she is expected to be okay. those are your headlines. it seems we have more and more frequent -- maybe it is because we have video cameras everywhere -- where we're capturing those incidents. >>brian: people have
3:06am
those cameras to keep an eye on terrorists especially in london, now here in the u.s. and over in madrid. >>steve: president obama and the first lady taking center stage last night at the inaugural ball. the late-night details with judge mcelway. >> the president attended two inaugural balls including the commander in chief's ball. that was quite a gathering including some of the famed tuskegee airmen. enlisted advisors from all branches of the military, the head of veterans affairs. most importantly it included gold-star families, families who lost loved ones in the fighting in iraq and afghanistan and many wounded warriors. before the ball the president took time out to chat via satellite. >> i can tell you that you've got a room full of
3:07am
patriots here. and although i've got to admit that they are a little spiffied up right now, their heart and soul, their dedication, their sense of duty is at one with every single one of the folks in kandahar right now. >> the couple scaled back attending the military ball and the public ball open to 40,000 people willing to shell out $60 for a ticket. higher prices for sections upstairs. that party spanned five different hallways at the convention center, the same square footage devoted to six separate balls during the president's first inauguration. an intimate little affair you might say, guys. >>steve: thank you very much. >>brian: he had two balls instead of ten balls. it was a lot smaller.
3:08am
the president didn't have to stay up all night. weren't they two floors down, finished up and could get started on his first day today. >>steve: how excited are they at the "new york times"? here's the headlines today. it recaps the president's speech to the nation yesterday. "obama offers liberal vision: we must act." you've got to wonder whether or not this is his last chance or is it legacy building. because really what his speech was about yesterday was, hey, i'm from the government. and if you're in the middle class, we're here to help you. >>gretchen: i think there's been so much talk about second-term presidents and how there has been concern about legacy and many people thought president obama would move more to the middle. i guess i never bought into that because he is what he is and you heard that
3:09am
yesterday. like it or not, that is what president obama is. people talk about political capital and would he make some of these decisions because of political capital? i think he talked about yesterday about what his agenda is. we'll hear more in detail in his state of the union speech. >>brian: here's a little bit. it's essentially don't worry about it, we've got your back. listen. >> our celebration of the nation and enterprise are insistence on hard work and personal responsibility, these are constants in our character. the preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. together we resolve that a great nation must care for the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and
3:10am
misfortunes. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> can we do that? can we protect everybody? i think this country is about opportunity to be successful. can we actually protect every single person and provide a safety net to every human being? >>gretchen: i think part of the day is about uplifting the spirit of america. i think some of this is rhetoric. i think you'd have a republican president who would also say let's pick up everyone and give everyone opportunity because this is the home of the brave and america the beautiful. to a certain extent, i think some of this you have to look at from that point of view. >>steve: he was talking about the middle class. he made it very narrow a lot. he was talking about the people who have been really successful, they are going to have to pay more. it sounded more like a convention speech and less like a -- you know. it was more like a state of
3:11am
the union address. it was a little surprising given the fact that we had hoped that there would be some bipartisanship there. they were all in that room yesterday having lunch together. you would think maybe they'd get along. maybe not so much. in fact, charles krauthammer thinks this officially puts the nail in the coffin of something. watch this. >> i think what is most interesting is obama basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. in 1981 in his inaugural address, within two minutes reagan declared government is not the solution. government is the problem. today's inaugural address was a rebuke to that entire idea. this speech today was an ode to big government. in his refrain "we the people," he said, number one i'm going to defend what liberalism achieved in the 20th century. social security, medicare and medicaid. i'm not going to let any of
3:12am
that be chipped away. second, he said the vision for the future is climate change and green energy. there's going to be his new expansion of liberalism in the new century. and then the third element was his expansion of civil rights where he talked about immigrants and gays and even shoehorned gun rights under the rubric of the security. he outlined the liberal agenda, the big-government agenda of the future. >>gretchen: i think there were two words that came out of it that summarized what charles was saying was that the president yesterday used these two words: collective action. if you parse those two words, it could bring you back to how he started in his career as a community organizer. >>steve: bob schieffer from cbs said there were no memorable lines in this speech. i think what is memorable is what his political director at cbs said in offering advice in a "slate" magazine column to the president. go for the throat of the g.o.p.
3:13am
listen. >> this article should scare anybody who has any doubts whatsoever about the media's impartiality. he is the news director, political director -- excuse me -- for cbs news. he writes a piece in which he calls for essentially an antidemocratic action. depoliticize the g.o.p. action. he believes obama at to delegitimize. it was one thing if he was saying this is what the president is attempting to do or what i think his strategy is. but this is his advice to the president. >>steve: there you've got the cbs political director. he's supposed to be unbiased. but he also is the chief political correspondent for that lefty blog, slate. he wrote a day or so ago -- quote -- "the president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about
3:14am
bipartisanship can only preserve his legacy if he wants destroys the g.o.p. he must go for the throat." he wants to destroy the republicans, wants one party. isn't that a dictatorship. >>brian: next as we move ahead, because we have a lot to discuss, coming up next, it's the wrestling move no one saw coming. look up. the shocking story behind that shocking video board landing on his back. >>gretchen: phil mickelson backing down after keying off on high taxes.
3:15am
this happy couple used capital one venture miles for their "destination wedding." double miles you can "actually" use. but with those single mile travel cards... [ bridesmaid ] blacked out... but i'm a bridesmaid. oh! "x" marks the spot she'll never sit. but i bought a dress! a toast... ...to the capital one venture card. fly any airline, any flight, anytime. double miles you can actually use. what a coincidence? what's in your wallet? [ all screaming ] watch the elbows ladies.
3:16am
3:17am
[ breathes deeply, wind blows ] [ male announcer ] halls. let the cool in. has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy.
3:18am
>>brian: getting heat for suggesting he may make changes to his own life based on the increasing tax burden placed on successful americans especially in california. even forbes, a magazine featuring successful people, is jumping on the band wagon writing -- quote -- "mickelson should stop whining and give thanks for your good fortune." now he is apologizing. where does this say about where we are in america now. >> let's ask him. the left is saying you make good money. pay up and shut up. that article in forbes was an absolute outrage saying that mickelson should stop whining and give thanks, that he is lucky for making
3:19am
decent money. lucky. that's outrageous. what about all the practice, all the hard work that goes into it? what about the unique talent? you don't reward that? no. you've got to take 63% of every extra dollar that man makes. that is outrageous. that's america today. >>steve: he has put out a statement after we reported yesterday that given his heavy tax burden he was thinking about making changes, maybe even moving out of the country. he says right now, i'm like many americans trying to understand the new tax laws. i've been learning a lot over the last few months and talking with people who are trying to help me make intelligent and informed decisions. i certainly don't have a definitive plan at this time but like everyone else i want to make decisions that are best for my future and my family. finances and taxes are a personal matter, and i should not have made my opinions on them public. i apologize to those who i have upset or insulted and assure you, i intend to not let that happen again.
3:20am
>>steve: a man now has to apologize for upsetting people or offending people because he doesn't like the idea of paying 63 cents on every dollar extra that he makes. >>steve: there is no secret why so many professional athletes choose not to live in california he has to give away 60% of his money or he's whining and should feel lucky. he's away probably 250 days a year from his family. there is no guarantee of any single dollar. there is no guarantee in his life. >> what happened to states which have raised their tax rates like california, like illinois versus states like texas or florida or oklahoma or north carolina, all the other states which have abolished state income tax or are going to abolish this? >>brian: if you kept his taxes low, might he have bought the padres? might he have built another
3:21am
house, might he have invested in condominiums which could have helped the economy more? >> he was considering taking a piece of the san diego padres but for tax reason decided not to. what do you think is a fair share? you make a million bucks a year. what is a fair share the government should take off you?is that fair? >>steve: is it fair that some people pay zero in federal taxes? >> okay. what kind of a government takes half of any man's income? what kind of a government does that? >>brian: tell us how you feel. tweet us. varney and company coming up at 9:20. i have a sense you're talking golf. >> amazing, isn't it? >>brian: this time you got the hair on your back standing up. >> i do. >>brian: 20 minutes after the hour. a new invention can track if mentally ill patients are taking their
3:22am
medication. is this ethical? dr. samadi is here live. >>steve: dangling on the edge. wait till you see how these [ male announcer ] coughequence™ #8. waking the baby.

3:24am
3:25am
>>steve: great headlines. game over for atari. the u.s. toy maker that created pong, they're filing for bankruptcy. the company is looking for private capital so it can relaunch with a new focus on mobile gaming so you can play pong on your pon he. meanwhile, check this out. two brothers dangling on the edge of a dam for three hours. their fishing boat stalled on a tennessee river.
3:26am
fire fighters used a boat secured to the shore and a rope as well to reel them in. they're fine on this tuesday morning. gretchen, over to you. >>gretchen: listen to these shocking stats in new york city alone, as many as 11,000 homeless people suffer from some form of mental illness. more than 3,000 of them considered potentially violent and they are simply roaming the streets but there is an invention in the works that could monitor mentally ill patients and warn doctors if they stop taking their meds. is this a good idea or an invasion of their policy? joining me now is dr. david samadi. complicated issue. this invention would actually send you as the physician some sort of alert on your phone if one of your patients is not taking their medication? >> yes. gretchen this was approved actually last year in july by f.d.a. it's called a smart pill. basically it has a sensor,
3:27am
a pill that the patient takes, it has a sensor. there is a patch on the patient. actually what it does, it gets activated as you take your medications with saliva and takes all that information and sends it to either my smart phone or anywhere we want to program it. it's important because one of the biggest issues we have in medicine is the compliance. is the patient taking their medications? when itdoms diabetes, high blood pressure, which this pill can do and give us that information which is really effective, but when it comes to psychiatric patients, they could be harm to themselves, to the society and to others. so that makes it even more important using this kind of technology. i like the technology. it's not 100% perfect but we have come a long way to really get to know what our patients are doing. are they compliant? are they really taking? that in the long term, gretchen, can reduce millions of dollars off of our health care costs. >>gretchen: and potentially violent crimes if some of these people are mentally ill and not taking their medications.
3:28am
but here's the problem, and we know this is the rub in the situation, number one, is it ethical? number two, there are so many laws now that protect the rights of the mentally ill, sometimes that super seeds the rights of the individual victim in many of these cases. the court says you can't force these people to take meds. >> unfortunately, that's part of the shortcoming of the system. they have rights, of course. when it comes to serious mental illness, you may have to get a court order to be able to do this. when you talk about psychiatric illnesses, you have bipolar, you have depression, manic. the problem with their medications can really throw them off. schizophrenia, sometimes you don't even recognize that these are people that may be shooting or abusing or violence, et cetera. so making sure that they take the right dose, they are compliant, they are in tune, monitor them, it's the way to go. if this technology is going to help the society, i like the technology. i think it's not only going to help with heart disease,
3:29am
diabetes but those with a lot of mental -- you talk about statistics. over 3,000 of our homeless people are violent and they live around us, it's unacceptable. i think this will help us. >>gretchen: that's just one city we're talking about. always good to see you, doctor. the startling side effect of a drug so many of you take every day. what you need to know about that coming up next. did you know little tikes almost send their made-in-america business to china? the incredible story of why they decided to stay right here at homecoming up next. first, happy birthday to steve perry. his music sounds young, but his music sounds young, but he's 64. [ dylan ] this is one way to keep your underwear clean. this is another! ta-daa! try charmin ultra strong. it cleans so well and you can use up to four times less

you name it...i've hooked it. but there's one... one that's always eluded me. thought i had it in the blizzard of '93. ha! never even came close. sometimes, i actually think it's mocking me. [ engine revs ] what?! quattro!!!!! ♪ quattro!!!!! he's going to apply testosterone to his underarm. axiron, the only underarm treatment for low t, can restore testosterone levels back to normal in most men.

beyonce stealing the show at the president's inaugural. she's winning national praise for her rendition. bret baier decided to play that in its entirety at the end of the show. i want to thank you for doing that brett because it gave my kids a chance to see that amazing performance and a feeling of patriotism in the country. >>brian: can almost hear your kids now. >>gretchen: they loved it. >>steve: kelly clarkson was on. she was fantastic as well. take a look. america's first couple is on the cover of ""the new york post"." jay-z and beyonce walking in. look at this guy right here. keep in mind, this is capitol hill. this is the hardest stick in the world to get. there's peter king, congressman snapping a picture with his cell phone. pols fawn over beyonce, jay-z at inaugural. >>gretchen: maybe somebody's taking a picture
3:35am
of jerry with them in the background. >>brian: congressman king knew he should turn around because there's beyonce but later said i didn't know who she was with. that's interesting. people who know her call her beyonce. kelly clarkson i thought was also pretty strong. >>gretchen: and jennifer hudson later at night. >>brian: plus they had a poet. it was a long poem. 26 minutes before the top of the hour. an extreme weather alert. an iconic sports stadium right now in ruins. a roof panel at the silver dome in michigan left at that shredded because of wind and snow. the roof was deflated because of a renovation project. a wild day in that region. maria molina live in the weather center. >>maria: bitterly cold across places in the
3:36am
midwest, great lakes and the northeast. we're starting to feel impacts of this cold air digging out from canada across the i-95 corridor in places like new york city and boston. it's currently 1 degree in chicago, 8 degrees in cleveland. in minneapolis 9 degrees below zero for your current temperature. that is your actual temperature on the thermometer. not your wind chill. factor in the wind and it feels closer. minnesota feels like 26 below degrees. 29 below in fargo and almost 40 below in international falls. dangerously cold conditions if you're not properly bundled up. feels like 6 degrees in philadelphia and 12 below zero in buffalo. because it's so-called and we're talking about frostbite being a concern and hyperthermia, we have wind chill warnings in effect in states like minnesota, parts of wisconsin and wind chill
3:37am
advisories in portions of new york. in effect for several days because we're expecting the cold to continue here in new york city through at least thursday. otherwise that cold air going over the lakes produces lake-effect snow. we're looking at that across upstate new york and western michigan right now. >>steve: maria, this is not the day to try to re-create that famous christmas scene where the little boy sticks his tongue on the phrag pole. >>maria: do not do that. no snow angels. stay home. >>brian: super bowl next week in new york. get ready. there is no dome to collapse. here's the news that should be interesting to you. >>gretchen: he founded the weather underground, the organization that bombed the new york city police department, the capital building and pentagon in the 1970's but that is not stopping a teachers grew from hand-picking bill ayers.
3:38am
he will address teacher educators next month in atlanta. ayers was involved in a townhouse bombing in new york city that left three people dead. >>steve: singer james taylor says he knows what gun owners want. >> i think the majority of us feel strongly, even the majority of gun owners feel strongly that we need to make some sacrifice to our freedoms if that's the way to put it. >>brian: is he wearing scalia's hat? >>steve: taylor made the comment after performing at the inauguration. advocates very concerned about the president's proposal on gun control if you take aspirin, it can triple your chances of going blind. those who take it on a regular basis can cause age related macular degeneration.
3:39am
>>gretchen: they tell you to take it for your heart and blood thinning. >>steve: the low dose. >>gretchen: watch this. a huge lighting fixture falls from above landing on the child during a meet in wisconsin. he had just gotten into position to start up the match again when it happened. luckily he only needed a few stitches. no word on what caused the light to fall. talk about the chances. that fell right on top of him. >>brian: wrestlers are tough. he walks it every year america imports over $20 billion in toys. but when it comes to exporting them, we only ship out a fraction of $1 billion worth. >>gretchen: a visit to one of those companies still creating toys and jobs. heather is over there with beautiful kid who are very vocal at this hour. >> they are. sorry about the noise over
3:40am
here. some of these are my kids and some are friends of ours. a lot of these things will look really familiar to you. little tikes is the company, and they made these toys for more than 40 years in america's heartland. hudson, ohio, this company has chosen to stay in the united states when other companies, especially competitors, have gone overseas. we went to ohio to find out why. >> chances are if you have a toddler, your kitchen looks a little like this. this bright little car is called the cozy coupe. in the last 33 years little tikes sold more than 14 million worldwide. 80% of its products, including the turtle sandbox and the swing, are made in america. nearly 1,000 people work at the hudson, ohio, plant. tom richmond, general manager, shows how these are transformed into toys. >> we're going to pour the plastic into that mold, heat it to 700 degrees.
3:41am
it melts that plastic or powder. >> when it comes down, you trim it? >> put it into a box. the box is automatically weighed. >> what does it mean that you're making a product that's made in america? >> i love it. there's not a lot out there that is made in america. i'm very proud. you see it in yard sales. they last forever. being in the u.s.a., people like to buy u.s.a. stuff. >> two years ago the company made america's best-selling swing in another country. >> we transferred it to china in the 1990's. about four or five years ago we looked at the total cost of doing business and said you know what? america has the highest productivey, we have the lowest raw material cost in the world and we have the lowest energy cost in the world. let's look at how we can make this product back here in america. >> and today the swing once
3:42am
again is made in the u.s.a. a few years ago when the economy tanked, little tikes considered moving manufacturing elsewhere, but ultimately they decided to stay, receiving close to $4 million in tax incentives from the government. >> we certainly appreciate the support of the state and the federal government. but honestly, it's not enough to make a difference. it's about the people. it's about the productivity, about the longevity. >> at this plant they make a huge as sortment of toys from seesaws to barbecue grills. >> everything little tikes does emulates what parents do in the real world. >> that's why moms are a big part of the research. today they are giving suggestions for the redesign of the cozy coupe. >> easy for them to use by themselves. they can get in it and walk along. >> i think toddlers are drawn to the kind of cartoony look that it has. but the colors are definitely the iconic
3:43am
thing. >> little tikes was kind enough to send us some of their items from their new spring line, and the kids are obviously having fun along with steve right there. the new little cozy coupe, another cozy coupe, the turtle sandbox which a lot of us remember from our childhood. and this slide right here. >>steve: we still have these in our basement. they last forever. >> these things last forever probably after hurricanes and the end of the world too. that is it. they based. thank you. >>brian: those kids are like models. they aren't from the sears catalog? >> we're going to send them to your house, brian. >>brian: you should. >>gretchen: here's what we have coming up. president obama compared his policies to president
3:44am
lincoln's during yesterday's inauguration speech. but when it comes to the constitution, do these two presidents have anything in common? judge napolitano will look next. he'll be on one of those little tikes little scooters. >>brian: you've never seen a police chase quite like this. cops trying to stop a red lobster's 30 shrimp. wow, that's a lot of shrimp.

constitution. here to explain, judge andrew napolitano. we heard the beginning of the constitution five times yesterday. "we the people." >> if you like the president, if you believe in his vision of a federal government that can right any wrong and regulate any behavior and make everybody equal, then you celebrated the speech yesterday. but if you like i think you and i and probably most people watching us, believe that the constitution not only constitutes, not only creates the government, it restrains the government, then you didn't like what you heard yesterday. yesterday was a very broad, expansive view of government. we can do this. we can do that. we can make schools safe. we can make the environment clean. we can get rid of the bad guys. we can make poor people rich. but nothing in there about freedom, about areas of human behavior immune from government interference. that's the whole theory behind the constitution. that's why it's lasted for 230 years.

4:07am
doug mckelway is live in washington with all the late night details. it went over without a hitch. it wasn't a marathon night for the president and the first lady, correct? >> yeah. that's right. the parties associated with the second inaugurations are typically scaled down. last night was no exception. the first couple attended only two ball last night. but one of them was really touching convenient. that being the commander in chief's ball. what an esteemed crowd, included some of the famed tuskegee airmen, branches of all the military. perhaps most significantly action, gold star families. those who lost loved ones in fighting in iraq and afghanistan and also a lot of wounded warriors were there. in their presence, the president took time out to chat via satellite with warriors still on the front lines in afghanistan. >> all of you who are there, we know it's tough being away from your families. we know the incredible sacrifice s and challenges that
4:08am
you meet every single day. >> the president added that though all of the ball attendees were spiffed up in their best formal wear, their hearts were with those in harm's way. then to one more ball, the official public inaugural ball at washington's convention center. the los angeles time described it as, quote a bit like a senior prom on steroids. this was truly the people's ball. open to 40,000 people willing to pay 60 bucks for a ticket. higher price for separate sections upstairs. all that, huge soiree, spanned five different hallways, the same area devoted to six separate balls during the president's first inauguration. indeed, a bit of a scaled back night of fun. back to you. >> steve: thank you very much. today the tuxedos go back. by noon, if you want to escape the big charges. meanwhile, it's about four, five years ago the president of the us u then senator, promised if elected, by the end of my first
4:09am
term, i'm going to cut that first deficit in half. we didn't hear anything about that yesterday. in fact, it sounded more like spend, spend, spend, and in fact, if you're just waking up, you were sleeping through the speech yesterday, the main speech point was whatever you need, middle class, we're going to give it to you. >> brian: education, roads, communication, networks, science, labs, a lot of investment in infrastructure, which means investment infrastructure means do you need revenue? to get revenue, you raise taxes. >> gretchen: you lint like what he was talking about, maybe you liked that it was short. under 20 minutes. we heard that one president in history gave a two-hour speech. >> brian: and he died. >> steve: he did. >> gretchen: he did soon after of pneumonia. let's talk about that whole idea of the middle class, though, because these are the facts, folks. the median household income in 2007 was $54,489. of course, that was before the
4:10am
banks collapsed and before the recession. in 2011, that has gone down to $50,054. that's a huge chunk of change when you're talking about families raising kids, trying to send them to college and trying to feed them. >> steve: because when you look at the middle class, and every class, we really want for everybody in this country is to have a job. we really didn't hear a whole lot about that. we didn't hear much about cutting anything. we didn't hear about jobs. take a look. we got some stats. unemployment at the beginning of a second term. and as you can see, president obama starts the second term with unemployment at 7.8%. george w., 5.3. clinton, 5.3. reagan was high at 7.3. and richard nixon was at 4.9. >> brian: putting it in perspective, knowing the challenges were different for each president, john meacham, an historian, wrote the book on jefferson, weighed in with bill o'reilly. >> the most important line and
4:11am
not in the speech, it's the fall in media household income over the last 12 years. without rectifying that, this will be an unmemorable presidency and potentially a significantly -- >> how is he going to do that in three years? how is he gog remedy that, turn that around so that the regular folks start to make more money? it seems to me almost inconceivable. almost impossible with his policies. >> with his policies. but i think we're all to blame here. i really do. i think that a lot of people don't want to heart hard truth. people don't want to pay more tax. they don't want to see these cuts. they don't want to embrace the simpson bowles kind of proposals. these are hard choices. but guess what? you and i didn't run for president. he sought the job. it is now his solemn responsibility and i think he is
4:12am
a good man and i think you agree with that. it's his responsibility to lead us. my sense is the problem at the moment is that he's allowing the dysfunction in the capitol, which is there, and the public's reluctance to make shard choices. he's allowing that to lead him. he's not leading us. >> gretchen: that is so astute, actually. 'cause john meacham, for the most part, usually would not be critical of president obama. it was a very astute thing. >> brian: that's true. he was here, i found him very level headed talking about his book. tom brokaw said something similar who told he was a democrat. many people saw that in his broadcast. but he said the same thing. don't you see the problem is the deficit and the debt and why aren't you focused on that? the president is uniquely qualified to focus on it. his approval could drop to 30% and it wouldn't matter if do you the responsible thing.
4:13am
you could even use rinse as the battering ram did -- use republicans as the battering ram. you could say let's give them something to do. if you don't want to raise tax, the president found a way to raise taxes. raise it on rich people. now he can make the hard choice and say listen, even though he said something totally opposite in his inaugural address, he could say something different at the state of the union. we can't sustain them. as much as i love medicare and social security. what do you think about this? we could handle that. >> steve: jack welch yesterday, he tweeted yesterday, inaugurals always magnificent. appears president obama comfortable with high unemployment and huge deficits. no serious mention. clearly this president is lurching to the left. it's naked. his ambition is there. there is some on the right who think this could be good fort republicans because if you look back to 2009 when the president had the white house, the
4:14am
democrats had the house, and the senate as well and there was a great big push at the stimulus, that got rammed through and so did health care. what happened two years later? the democrats got shellacked in the house. which if you read peggy noonan, it looks like this president might be on the verge of doing just that. >> gretchen: there is so much ability to try and get something done. we'll see. i don't think he's going to do it in the state of the union, but we'll see. he's the political director over at cbs. so why is he telling president obama to, quote, go for the throat of the gop? so many people would say that he should be unbiased. we'll explore that. >> steve: then they picked the wrong guys to mess with. why it's not a good idea to throw snowballs at uniformed firefighters. they got a hose.

4:19am
strategist? >> i'm not surprised. this is the cbs political director, who is also the chief political correspondent at slate, which is a far left leaning publication. john dickerson was credited with being the guy who knocked george w. bush off his heels the most times during his presidency. it's not surprising to me, though, that there is a conflict of interest here. do we remember during the election when there were reporters caught off mic before mitt romney made his statement? cbs news reporter, jan crawford, was one of those reporters. so clearly there is a problem at cbs of there being biased in their reporting. but as we've seen throughout the years, it's not surprising. >> steve: so this is clearly, in your estimation, an example, glaring example of liberal media bias? >> i think it is. and at least with mr. dickerson, he is honest about, in his biothat he's work for slate and the cbs political director.
4:20am
but -- >> steve: how do you do both? >> that's the question. i mean, if cbs is going to portray themselves as a middle of the road, unbiased news source, then it seems a little strange that you would have someone who is writing regularly for a far left publication, as the political director. i think that we saw that with the election reporting. we've seen that in the past four years with the obama administration with cbs. we've seen the results of that conflict of interest play out when questions are asked. >> steve: where he writes in slate, the lefty blog u got to destroy the republican party. i guess he just wants one party which would essentially make it a dictatorship. in the article he's blaming all the woes in washington on those darn republicans. i guess he's forgotten about the do nothing democrats in the u.s. senate, who haven't passed a budget in three years. i guess he forgot about the fact that the republicans actually are now talking about voting tomorrow on extending the debt limit so there is not a fight.
4:21am
and about how about a month ago, they raised taxes on the rich. he's forgetting all about that. he's just trying to help barak obama with a successful four years. >> right. he makes this argument in piece that republicans have been the ones standing in the way of president obama's first term agenda. if i recall correctly, president obama has spent a lot of money, there hasn't been a lotting spending cuts at all, in fact. president obama got his obamacare through, that's something the house didn't want. the fact is that yes, president obama was reelected, but there were lots of house republicans who were also relie detectorred. the way that the system is set up, president obama needs republicans to get through his second term agenda. and on that point, mr. dickerson says the only way president obama can leave a legacy in his second term is destroy the gop. i don't think that's a good way forward. >> steve: all right. you're probably right on this day after the day of unity. thank you for joining us live. >> thank you. >> steve: what do you think about that? e-mail us.

4:39am
thinking it was funny. the other kids in the class thought it was funny also. and they proceeded to pass the tape and the scissors around the class and the students, you know, the majority of the class ended up putting a piece duct tape across their mouths. >> steve: well, the school board is going to vote on her termination next week. >> gretchen: let this be a lesson to all you pranksters. a group of british teens throwing snowballs at firemen, never saw this coming. the firefighters had a secret weapon. a water cannon. they turned up the hose and blasted the bridge above. that's one way to get pranksters back. i like it. >> steve: that will teach them. yesterday we told but how over the weekend, phil mickleson was talking about how these new taxes and stuff like that, i haven't figured out what i'm going to do. i'm thinking about taking drastic changes and maybe even leaving the country. look, he pays right now 62, 63%
4:40am
of every dollar in taxes. he felt like something had to go and he might go out of the country. now he's kind of backtracking after the left lashed out at him. >> gretchen: also he intimated he might leave california, which also has high tax. "forbes" magazine came out with this headline. do you think it's over the top? here is what it said. stop whining and give thanks for your good fortune. the problem is that -- >> steve: that's "forbes" magazine. >> gretchen: forbes is all about self creating and working really hard. if you ever watch a golf tournament, he's one of the top players in the world, he's bought tremendous amount of hours of sacrifice into his game. one of the rewards of that is that you make money. that's just the way it works. >> brian: he came out, he didn't apologize for his statement. he apologized for saying it out loud. right now like many americans, tax lurks i don't have a definitive plan, but like everybody else, i want to make decisions best for my future and family. finances and taxes are a
4:41am
personal matter. i should not have made my opinions on them public. i apologize for those i have upset. he shouldn't be apologizing. what do you think? jay in pennsylvania says personally, i don't like the rich, but that doesn't mean i think we should impose excessive taxes on them. oh, really? we shouldn't if we all want to have work. >> steve: e-mail from bob in maryland. brian, you don't understand, mickleson owes that money to the government. after all, didn't it, the government, allow him to practice to develop those skills? >> brian: right. >> steve: maybe what he was doing was he was trying to do a gerard depardieu thing where he would got an offer, like prosecute russia, to get status as a citizen there to avoid high taxes like they have p france. >> gretchen: is there a lot of golf in russia? >> steve: he could be a pioneer. >> brian: looking straight ahead, looking for a job with a six figure salary? cheryl casone has them. she's here with the top five companies hiring right now. then these guys give new meaning to the term, classic rock.

5:03am
one man from colorado managed to hide from the terrorists for 2 1/2 days. at times the terrorists feet away. texted his wife about halves going on. she had to wait for his words that he was actually okay. >> she didn't know what was wrong with him or where he was and hadn't heard anything except that he was either captured, murdered or he was hiding out someplace. so we just prayed. >> i mean, it's hard when you got a loved one that's over in a different country and all that stuff happening. it's hard. >> gretchen: some of the weapons used in that attack in algeria apparently stolen from the libyan stockpiles. terrifying moments for peenges southwest flight at denver airport. you're being to take off, fire warning light comes on, plane barreling down the runway. the pilot slams on the brakes, blowing out three tires. >> it was a little scary, 'cause we were just p to take off and then it just slammed.
5:04am
it was a big jolt when we were in the air and starting to lift. then had to get back down. >> gretchen: 137 passengers, five crew members on board. they were not hurt. right now mechanics are trying to pig out why exactly that light came on. voters across israel heading to the polls. we're hearing turnout is very heavy so far. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu expected to win reelection there. he cast his ballot earlier this morning. netanyahu promising voters he's going to keep israel safe and he's also going to build those jewish settlements despite some international opposition and controversy about that. it's a move that this high school wrestler, you just saw it, never saw coming. a light fixture falls on him during a meet in wisconsin. he had just gotten into position when it happened. luckily, guess what? he only needed a few stitches after that. he could have been killed.
5:05am
no word on what caused that light to fall. those are your headlines this morning. >> steve: what a take down. >> brian: all right. >> steve: that's the light above us. it's been hang for ten years. >> gretchen: it's right above me. >> brian: keep checking it. look up. make sure everything is going to be all right. president obama gets to work this morning on his second term after a day full of convenience for his inauguration. wendell goler is live at the white house with all the details about the big bashes last night and what's in store today. >> the inaugural committee shrunk the number of balls down from ten to two. so after an address to nearly a million spectators on the mall and a parade to the white house in which they got out of the motorcade a couple of times, got out of the limo a couple times, the president and first lady attended attended the commander in chief's ball and the larger inaugural ball with about 20,000 of their closest friends. mrs. obama wore a red chiffon jason woo dress, the same
5:06am
designer she wore at her first inaugural. jennifer hudson channeled her best al green and the president sang the words to "let's stay together" which we know he can sing, as he and the first lady danced. some of the tickets, as little as $150 so middle americans could attend. some were free. at the commander in chief's ball, the president praised america's servicemen and women. >> we experienced the manual see of our democracy -- majesty of our democracy, a ritual only possible in a form of government that is of and by and for the people, a day made possible because there are patriots like each and every one of you who defend our freedom every single day. so this little party is just another way to say something we can never say enough. thank you. >> the president said he had no greater honor than serving his
5:07am
commander as chief. he danced with staff sergeant bria nelson of the air force. mrs. obama danced with timothy easterling of the marines. the service members chosen by senior enlisted members based on combat effort. the president and first lady, vice president biden and his wife, jill, attended a national prayer service at national cathedral. that gets underway a little more than 2 1/2 hours from now. steve, gretchen, brian. >> another busy day. if you missed the speech yesterday, it was 19 minutes long. and just the thumbnail sketch is he said essentially to the left of america, there is a lot of things we'd like to get done. and i've got four more years. we're going to go ahead and do it. it's interesting, though, he didn't really talk about unifying the country after a bruising campaign, but instead, it was directed mainly at the left. jennifer ruben at the "washington post" said, quote, it was the most underwhelming
5:08am
and unsurprising inaugural address of my lifetime. she says, it sounded like a recycled convention speech. and there were no memorable lines. the best thing about it, she says? it was short. >> brian: chris matthews has a different opinion. he said it was a modern day gettysburg address. i guess it depended where you were sitting. >> gretchen: a lot of people two away two words. collective action. there was a lot made about the two words that the president talked. if you analyzed what that means, maybe you go back in time to when avenues community organizer. this is sort of his philosophy that it takes the government to get people ahead. it's sort of the opposite of maybe what some people would argue president reagan was about. so here is a snippet, a couple different pieces of his speech yesterday from president obama. >> our celebration of a mission, an enterprise, our insistence on hard work and personal responsibility. these are constants in our character. preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires
5:09am
collective action. we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation this will build its future. together we resolve that a great nation must care for the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and misfortune. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> steve: five times during his address, he said we the people. some on the right are saying today, what he was really saying is we, the government. big government on the offing. "new york times" today, the headline, obama offers liberal vision, we must act. it's funny, gretch mentioned ronald reagan, he once famously said the nine most terrifying words in the english language are, i'm from the government and i'm here to ten. essentially that's what the president said yesterday. if you're in the middle class, i'm from the government and i'm here to help you.
5:10am
>> brian: bill clinton and ronald reagan said the year of big government is over. essentially in different ways. so this is the president. the president said, let's focus on rights. he have talked about seneca falls. selma, referring to the 1965 civil rights movement, and stonewall where the gay rights movement took root in 1965. and also he talked about we're focusing again on the environment. i guess green technology. what he says is climate change, which is interesting because he's talking about gay rights. he probably wouldn't be talk being that if joe biden didn't ram rod him into it on a sunday comment that popped up. and with green technology, that's been a disaster when he ram rodded t the stimulus money. i hardly think it's settled scientific collective thought that the world is a victim of climate change due to centralization. >> gretchen: did he say that it was. he did say that part of the speech, the direct quote was that the science proves. >> brian: but it doesn't. >> gretchen: i'm just saying that's what he says. i was a little surprised that
5:11am
some of heat political issues came up in the inaugural address. usually you wait to do those in the state of the union, which is just a couple of weeks away. why? because this is a time to sort of uplift america. i think he did accomplish that in certain parts of the speech. but did he also get political in it. by the way, coming up, they're going to get right back to politics because they're going to be talking about the budget and that relationship to whether or not congress should be paid. they're going to get right back down to business. it's not going to be an easy sell for president obama because remember, the house is still controlled by the republicans. >> steve: one of the shots that the president took at the republicans when he referred to the nation of takers. clearly that's a shot at mitt romney. a lot of people feel that would be beneath presidential inaugural speech. john mccain said i've been to seven of these and usually it's all about extending the hand across the aisle. that wasn't in this particular speech. in the "wall street journal" today, they write, we want the
5:12am
president to succeed because we all succeed as a country if that happens, but the second term breaks down to rancor and gridlock, it's very clear, it will be for republicans, i'm in your face. >> brian: what i did enjoy is seeing his family. he's a great family man, does a great job with the girls. to see their excitement. >> steve: it was a beautiful day for america. that's how it works here. >> gretchen: more people turned out than expected. so that was also an interesting emblematic of the election. >> steve: it's now 11 minutes after the top of the hour. don't pass a budget, don't get paid. that's the message that some lawmakers are proposing in order to get things moving in washington. will that make things budge is this we're going to talk about that next. >> brian: look at this. he's wrestling crocodiles and he's only three years old.
5:13am
he
5:14am
5:15am
5:16am
>> brian: 1364 days since the senate last passed a budget. now some members of congress are saying enough already and they have a plan. this plan is to force washington to get serious about their fiscal problems. they say if congress does not pass a budget, they're not going to get paid. fox news has just learned from majority leader eric cantor that the house looked at this bill and says, we will vote on this bill tomorrow. dean keller came up with this a year ago. joining us from washington. senator, instead of saying hey, we're not going to lift the debt ceiling, you say, yeah, we will for three months and then go ahead and pass a budget in that time period. is that possible? >> i sure hope so. obviously that's the goal. that's been my goal for the last
5:17am
18 months since i've been in the senate. obviously to push the senate to do something. as you mentioned, we haven't had a budget for almost four years. washington, d.c i think we can agree on one thing, that the worst run institution in america right now is the united states congress. we need to do something different. >> brian: so to do that, you got to get to some control over your own colleagues and to do that, hold on to their paycheck. republicans like darrell issa say i think that's unconstitutional. >> there is a lot of people in washington, d.c. that obviously don't want to cut their pay. the purpose of that constitutional amendment was to make sure that members of congress didn't enrich themselves during the legislative session. i'll tell this to darrell issa and nails wants to make this argument. cut your pay and go back to your district and see if your constituents complain. >> brian: darrell issa is a successful businessman. he doesn't need a dollar (he didn't make his riches cutting his pay. >> brian: joe manchin is the only democrat that i can see
5:18am
that signed on. what do you think on the other side, some people on the left are calling it a gimmick. >> yeah. they're calling it a gimmick. i think leadership in the senate called it stupid. only in washington, d.c. do they call budgeting stupid. that's why we're $16 trillion in the hole right now. everything is done in washington, d.c. by crisis. everything is a crisis. whether it's the debt ceiling, whether it's sequestration, doesn't matter, whatever it is. everything is done by crisis. and we're going to push this forward. there is going to be a vote in the house tomorrow. president has already said if it's in the legislation, he'll sign it. so there is an opportunity. i've talked to joe. joe signed on to this thing and he's promised me that he'll trio get some of his colleagues on his side of the aisle to support the idea. >> brian: senator, i thought what was most encouraging to come out of the sunday shows david plouffe says the president finds it encouraging. so the white house would support a move like this. so instead of saying the debt ceiling is here, we're not going to move.
5:19am
you're saying we're moving ahead of the crisis. can you get a budget together in three months? is that possible? >> it is. in fact, you're required by law to have it ready by april 1. the bum jet should be completed by april 1. let me take a step further if i may and that is what's the purpose of having a budget committee if they're not budgeting? you we pay that committee $15 million every bienyum to do their budget? why don't we get rid of them if they're not doing their job? we pay them more money than veteran affairs and they don't even do their job. i would be the first to proposal the budget committee if they're not doing their job. >> brian: thanks for shaking up the place. >> thanking for having me on. >> brian: i can't wait to have you in the aftermath. hopefully it will be a big thumbs up. >> thank you. >> brian: straight ahead, he founded the weather underground. the group that bombed the pentagon. perhaps not the best person to deliver a keynote address to

5:25am
this culture that we live in now. everyone thinks it's so healthy. i'm about to have oatmeal at thend of the show. but how do we find out if they're bad for us? >> you might be the 15% that oatmeal works for. in which case i say eat it because it has a lot of health benefits. but if it isn't working for you and you're adding it in, it's actually going to do the opposite of promoting health. >> steve: let's talk about your plan and people who have done it absolutely love your plan. in phase one, do you a three-day cleanse. do you a yeast test, drink half your water in ounce in water, drink candle lion tea, 2,000 calories each day. you don't have to exercise. let's start at the beginning. what's the yeast test? >> what the yeast test is, we find that as we age, we lose digestive enzymes, stomach acid decreases. due to hormonal changes, yeast starts to kick up. when yeast becomes our bulk, we create a lot of carbs. we want to make sure the yeast
5:26am
is in check. >> steve: how do you figure out what the test is? >> well, it's a fun test. we say that if you drink wine or beer, you have that the night before, you have some dessert, you have some bread and you have some vinegar. what that guess to go do is cause whatever yeast is in your intestines to flair up. the next morning when you wake up, check your tongue. if it's coated white, it means there is a little yeast that needs to be brought into check. >> steve: that's pretty simple. >> gretchen: you do the cleanse and started aing in these foods to find out if they're reactive. let's say die the cleanse and then i have a yogurt and how would i know? >> we wouldn't even let you have yogurt in the beginning because it's that pro-inforeman tri. >> steve: you start small? >> you start with cheese, we start with wine, we start with steak. those are all lower inflammatory foods. that first week what we're trying do is get your immune system to kick in because 70% of your immune system is in your intestines. >> steve: i think it's a great plan to lose weight and a lot of people do. according to an article that i ready, you have 11% body fat. so it actually worked for you.
5:27am
but i think the larger point is a lot of things we think are good for us are actually making us sick. and we don't even realize it 'cause, time for one of these items, we've had them every day since we were 30. they're make us sick. >> right. people come to me in tear examines say, i don't understand what's going on. i'm eating the healthiest foods. i'm exercising. why do i keep gaining weight each year? why does my health get worse? it's frustrating. >> gretchen: so four, it's eggs. so even as slight as you are, if you eat an egg, what happens? >> if i auto one # 0-calorie egg, i'm going to look six months pregnant. my allergies are going to kick up. i might get a migraine and i'm gog gain a pound from one egg. >> steve: one pound from one egg. >> gretchen: wow. so you god to identify these trigger foods. check out the book called "the plan." eliminate the surprising healthy foods making you fat and lose weight fast. lynn, great to see you. >> great to see you. thank you. >> steve: how about styrofoam? is that good for you?

it doesn't help if you have no electricity and it is like hyped you right now here in the new york city, like 20. >> that's right. very sad, unfortunately across places in the northeast dealing with extreme cold. especially those without power and across places in the midwest. even though we're used to the cold out here, we have seen some delays or school closures across places in minute money. so that's how cold it is out there. some of these current temperatures are just incredible. 28 degrees below zero in international falls. 11 below zero in minneapolis. 8 below zero in green bay. you factor in the wind and it feels even colder. your current wind chill, 25 degrees below zero out there. 29 below zero in fargo. the same goes across places in the northeast where we're seeing wind chill temperatures below zero and places like buffalo, syracuse, harrisburg, pittsburgh, 10 below, detroit, 16 below zero. along i-95, not as bad, but we're still seeing those wind chill temperatures into the single digits in new york city, boston, philadelphia. as that colder air goes over the

5:38am
left leaning blog. just before the president's inauguration, he had this quote regarding what the president should do going forward. >> there is no indication the president clashes with the republicans will end soon. the president who came into office talking about bipartisanship and the cooperation can only cement his legacy, he was good until now. if he destroys the gop. if he wants to transform american politics, he must go for the throat. he uses the word later, pulverize. >> gretchen: yeah. i think there is a huge difference when you're writing commentary about sort of predicting what the president might do rather than giving solid advice directly to him. so that's what people are having a problem with and karl rove is one of them. >> this article should scare anybody who has any doubts whatsoever about the media's impartiality. he is the news director, the political director for cbs news. and he writes a piece in which
5:39am
he calls for essentially an anti-democratic action. you're right, delegit maze the political opposition. this is a country that deserves and needs to have two great political parties that raid against each other with one in the majority and one with a loyal opposition. but he doesn't believe that. he believes obama ought to delegitimateize. this is one thing if he says this is what i think the strategy is, but this is his advice to the president. >> gretchen: interestingly enough, and curiously, he's blaming all the problems in washington, d.c. on the republican party? if you think about it, you got the do nothing democrats in the senate. they haven't passed a budget in three years. you got the republicans actually have done something. tomorrow they're going to vote on extending the debt limit for three months. no fight there. they just voted on raising taxes on the wealthy. that's something they said they wouldn't do. they did something -- >> brian: back again. >> steve: it's kind of crazy. >> brian: and he sits there on

they're going to charge you the exact same. so go to their facebook page. facebook/sirius xm and let them know, or give them a call and let them know how you feel. >> gretchen: this is for your radio show and also fox news channel 'cause a lot of people are driving as they're watching our show or not watching, but listening to our show. >> brian: i do all weekend. >> gretchen: so you're saying that that also is going to go away? >> brian: that's up in august. there is no indication they're going to deal with that any different than they're dealing with fox news talk now. it's extremely, in my words, disrespectful. >> steve: we got to turn it around, go to their facebook page. >> gretchen: it's one of the most incredible videos you'll see all day. dolphin in trouble swims up to a group of divers for help. >> steve: just like flipper. and she's quickly becoming the queen of country music. miranda lambert joins us live. twins. i didn't see them coming.

5:46am
>> the patriots of 1776 did not fight to replace the tyranny of a king with the privileges of a few or the rule of a mob. for now decisions are upon us and we can not afford delay. we can not mistake absolutism for principle or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> steve: so will this set the tone for the next four years? peter johnson, jr., 24 hours ago issues we were sit nearing the studio and you were hopeful that the president of the united states would extend the hand -- >> i believe that he would. in fact, a couple people e-mailed me. one woman said i was delusional in that prospect. so what we heard was a hard left manifesto from the president of the united states yesterday at the inauguration. it was not so much about populism as it was about pandering. taas bizarre, disregarded
5:47am
priority of what our national interests were. where was the debt? where was the deficit in where was the unemployment? where was the issue of poverty in america, which has increased under his watch? where is the hopelessness? where is the fear that so many americans have that they're going to lose their house? where are the solutions for those problems? instead, we got this catalog of false premises, phantom arguments in terms of civil rights, in terms of global warming, in terms of long lines at the polls. so if i'm voting for the president in this past election and i'm a moderate democrat and a centrist democrat as i am, and i hear this yesterday, i say, is this president in touch with the realities of america or is this more about saying, my hand is on president lincoln and martin luther king's bible. this stack of bibles. i will make my statement about what i believe and look out on
5:48am
this millions of people, this throng and remember this forever. it's not about remembering this forever. it's about what we're going to do to make our country safe over the next four years. and then to say, well, you know, we can't be in a perpetual state of war. it says to me that there is a lack of understanding about the great terroristic threat that we face in this united states. and to say, well, that's the old way in america. it was disconcerting to say the least. >> steve: sure. it was very clear he was going to push his very left agenda. but you know what? there is some on the right who say that this could backfire on him because if you remember in 2009, he took office. he's a democrat. he had the white house. they had the senate and the house as well. they pushed through the stimulus and pushed through health care using a nuclear option and what happened in the mid terms? the democrats got shellacked. >> i believe this sets up the president, unfortunately, for
5:49am
our country for a backlash. when people and what he said and how he said it yesterday, they say, is this the country that we want going forward? has he captured the democratic party in a way that's bad for our national interests or has he been captured by the leftist elements of the democratic party in a way that's bad for our national interest? this sets autopsy whole backlash that i don't think we understand at this point. we wish him well, obviously. he's our president. but i was very surprised about what i heard yesterday. >> steve: you're not the only one. peter johnson, jr., thank you. >> okay. >> steve: straight ahead, are you wondering whether or not you have a strong case to sue? write to peter johnson, jr. at e-mailpeter at foxnews.com. he's gog answer your questions later in the week. >> so sue me. we're going to talk about it. if you're being sued or you think someone is going to sue you or if you want to sue somebody, send it to me. we're going to talk about it on the air. >> steve: are you going to be wearing those glasses? >> i don't know. i want a better picture. it's from 1987.
